Although September is January in fashion for me October was a real crazy, sparkling month, full with inspirations, including James Bond. I already feel how fast the end of the year is approaching, somehow before Christmas everything speeds up, don’t you think so? I love this time of the year not only because of the beautiful colours of the nature but because a lot of things are happening in the fashion world – although for some reasons a lot of surprising things have happened this month, like the change in the front of Lanvin, Raf Simons left Dior, editor-in-chief Annette Weber is leaving InStyle Germany and more. Anyhow, October was anything but not boring, check out my main inspirations from the month behind.
1. BALMAIN x H&M
Needless to say, the upcoming collection is just breathtaking, probably my favourite of all design x H&M collaborations. Absolutely stunning, glamorous details, representing the unmistakable Balmain army.
2. Fur (faux fur) collar
Still retro and I still love it. Big (faux) fur collars are one of my favourite accessories for winter, they can elevate any look instantly. Wearing it over a coat or just over a top gives a fresh and very stylish impression.
3. The slingback
This is something I can not explain. Chanel’s classic elegance is taking over every generation. To be completely honest these slingback are reminding me to my grandma’s footwear, still the more I look at them more I want them. Granny chic is the best in Chanel.
4. Oversized of the oversize
Volume, texture and colour – these are all my favourites about this knit cardigan. This photo was made at Etsy, check out what you can get there, Christmas is coming.
5. I-woke-up-like-this hair
Oh well, I just have got a bang myself and I need to get used to how to actually wear it. This style is the goal, I just love this careless, out-of-bed messy look.
+1 Bond, James Bond
I really think Daniel Craig represents a dream man, not only because of the latest 007 movie which is coming to the cinemas next week, but because in one of his interviews he proved he is a real gentleman in real life as well. He handles sexist questions about women just as James Bond would handle life-threatening criminals: killed them, with licence. Best Bond ever. (read the full story here)
